Bug Squad!

The caterpillars began the 2017-2018 school year by forming their chrysalis on the first and second days of school. Students waited expectantly for the butterflies to emerge as part of their study of entomology. That’s a fancy academic word meaning the study of insects. In fact, the study of butterflies is a specific branch of entomology called lepidopterology. Trying saying that to your 4th grader! If you see one of these students, be sure to ask them how to tell the difference between a male and female Monarch! Thank you Mrs. Hoover, for making learning an adventure!
